Muslims in Lwengo district are celebrating the appointment of a new district Khadi.  

In a letter dated 21st May, Sheikh Ismail Ibrahim Kibuule who has been acting Kadhi has been appointed as the new district Kadhi. He replaces the former Kadhi, Sheikh Juma Muwesi who died last year.

The letter signed by the Secretary for Religious Affairs at Uganda Muslim Supreme Council Sheik Muhammad Murshid Luwemba indicates that a recent special Majilis Al-Ulama Meeting unanimously agreed that Sheik Kibuule be appointed the district Kadhi.

“H.E the Mufti of Uganda Sheikh Shaban Ramathan Mubajje has directed that you be appointed as District Khadi on one-year probation” the letter reads in part.

Sheikh Abdullah Juko, the Chairperson Lwengo Muslim District Council has congratulated Kibuule upon his appointment wishing him a successful tenure of office asking him to serve the Ummah and community at large tirelessly.

In March Lwengo muslin authorities submitted names of two candidates to Uganda Muslim Supreme Council for consideration to fill up the position of the district Kdahi. The candidates were Sheikh Umar Kigongo and Sheikh Ismail Ibrahim Kibuule.

Sheik Kibuule has called upon the Muslim community to be united since unity is a great pillar towards development. He also asked the imams at various mosques in the district to always preach unity in their areas.  

Cue in: // “ nebaza Allah….” Cue out: // “….enkulakulana”

He says that his leadership is going to ensure that vulnerable groups such as children, women and youth are given a first priority since they make a big percentage in the community.  

Sheikh Umar Kigongo says that he is sure that sheikh Kibuule will serve the Muslim community since he has served at various levels.

He asked the Muslim community to support him and ensure that Muslims keep their children in schools.

Sheik Kibuule has served as Education secretary, a general secretary and later served as a publicity secretary in the former district Khadi leadership.
